About Marsyandi Rafting:
The Marsyangdi rises on the northern slopes of the Annapurna Himal, flows east through an arid valley around Manang, and then swings south to join the Trisuli River at Mugling. Marsyangdi means ‘raging river’ in local dialect, and this aptly describes it. Some of the river above Ngadi has been kayaked - the 1980 British Expedition started from Tilicho Lake at 4920m- but much of the upper river should probably be considered as unrunnable.
For most of the trip from Ngadi down to Bimalnagar the river is incised as a winding gorge in to the valley floor about 50 metres deep with sloping well wooded sides. Only a few villages are visible from the river and at times you could almost be on a river in Idaho or British Columbia. As the river turns fresh views unfold behind of the Manasalu and Annapurna rangs - a magnificnt backdrop. There are beautiful campsites.

The lower Marsyangdi gorges from Bimal Nager down the Mugling used to be an excellent river trip but a new dam has been built own stream of Bimalnager to generate electricity for Kathmandu and so there is now almost no water left in this section of the river and it can no longer be recommended. Both the dam and the powerhouse are vital to the economy of Nepal and are sensitive security areas. Any incident could badly rebound on other river runners and you will appreciate why we ask you to stay away from this lower section of the river.
